Hard Drive Recovery Group (HDRG), a data recovery service based out of Irvine, California, recently published a blog post that offers several cleaning tips to ensure one’s gadgets are clean. Hard Drive Recovery Group offers a variety of data recovery solutions in California at affordable prices.

Maureen Davies, a representative for Hard Drive Recovery Group, says, “It’s no exaggeration to say that the coronavirus pandemic has changed how we live. Entire countries have had to stop in their tracks and enter lockdowns, and residents have been instructed to practice social distancing and stay home. While the current situation is worrying, without a doubt, if we are to search for any positive effects of all this, it’s that everyone has become more conscious of personal hygiene. Almost everyone is adhering to sanitation practices, like the 20-second rule of handwashing, keeping our hands away from our faces and maintaining proper coughing and sneezing behavior. But we have to realize that good hygiene also extends to ensuring that our gadgets are kept clean.”

While there is no definitive documentation of the COVID-19 virus being transmitted through surfaces, Hard Drive Recovery Group is right in saying that practicing hygiene with electronic gadgets is an excellent layer of extra protection. Even the CDC suggests that surfaces should be properly cleaned, as recent studies have shown that the virus can actually last between hours to days on some surfaces. It is with this in mind that the company shares tips to clean gadgets without damaging them.

In the blog post, the company writes, “Since phones come from various manufacturers, practices may vary, although there are some common guidelines that you can follow no matter what brand your phone is. To start, make sure your phone is not plugged to any cable and all protective cases are removed. Lint-free, soft cloth, like those made of microfiber or those used in cleaning camera lenses is recommended. A dampened cloth should also be used to wipe any smudges, although you need to make sure there’s no excess moisture that may get into the open ports.”

Hard Drive Recovery Group also writes about the possibility of using soap for cleaning phones and other mobile devices. The blog post reads, “But then, if we’re trying to get rid of germs and viruses, simple wiping will not cut it. Health experts have advised that the coronavirus has a fat coating that can only be destroyed by either soap and water or alcohol. Double check with your phone manufacturer’s website whether you can use soap to clean your phone, though. For example, cloth dampened with soapy water is recommended by Apple, but only for the iPhone 11 line. Meanwhile, Samsung does not recommend soap to clean your handset. Disinfectant wipes are okay with Google, Samsung, and Apple, as long as they do not contain bleach.” The full blog post also contains more tips to clean both phones and other electronic devices, such as laptops and so on.

Hard Drive Recovery Group has established their knowledge and excellence in their field, as is made evident by their positive reviews. On the Google platform, for instance, the data recovery service has a perfect rating of 5 out of 5 Stars. In a recent review, Ramiro Aves says, “Lou and his team really went out of their way to help me, which was great, as I had already been to other data recovery services nearby and all of them said there was nothing they could do. HDRG restored all the data on my hard drive and had it back to me by the end of the week. No nonsense, high quality data recovery!”

Meanwhile, in another review, Hagen Rich shares, “We had a multiple hard drive failure on a RAID 5 Exchange machine, and my boss selected HDRG to do the RAID data recovery. The response was fast (they actually sent someone out to pick up our server), and we had a repaired system within three days. Great, friendly data recovery service that definitely knows what they’re doing.”
